Subject: Track Correction
So, I did not see this run of the Fillmore. It was always epic to see the band at this venue and anywhere in the Rocky Mtn State. The sit-ins at the Fillmore where the stuff that music history was to be made.
So, a slight correction. The unknown track 28 is actually the 2nd encore "You Ain't Going Nowhere." Since this show was seeded so long ago, I am not sure it will be corrected.
Anyway peace, love and String Cheese. Come on back boyz, real soon . . . .

Cheese finally came out with a an upbeat "It Is What It Is" that set the stage for a fun, well-played fist set. The Latin rythms of "Yo Se" got everyone on his feet, and the funky "Born on the Wrong Planet" turned the Fillmore into a groovy dance party. "Time Goes By", played for the first time, was cheerful, but will problably sound better after a few months on the road. The McCoury's and Jason Carter helped finish the first set bluegrass-style.
Sure wish they'd put some more bathrooms in this place :) It sucks to wait thirty minutes in line. Luckily the boys came back out for a phenomonal second set with a mix of great Cheese originals and ton of well-chosen covers, from a long lost tribal-sounding "Exodus" and a fully funky version of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon", to an extended "Birdland" jam, and an eubulient "Under African Skies" (Paul Simon), continuing the African vibe. After a classic cheesy "Black Clouds" and encoring with "Foggy Mountain Breakdown", the final cover of Bob Dylan's "You Ain't Going Nowhere", played again with the McCoury's and Jason Carter was a sweet way to end the show and the three night run.
The crowd at the Fillmore, as usual during Winter Carnival, was a smiling, dancing bunch. I enjoyed the show up by the soundboard and the painters creating a psychedelic painting thick with colorful paint, I but had an even better time in the back of the venue where the sound was surprsingly better and there was plenty of room to stretch out. Thanks to whomever started the glow-string toss first set! That was really fun until the usually accomodating Fillmore staff shut it down.
All in all a phenomenal show! This audience download sounds great (Thanks Todd R.), but it would be nice to hear a sounboard, too. Get this show!!!
ON FIRE (new song)
are all must hears in my book.
